Welp that didn't take long. One minute your planning the most awesomest photo-op evah of The One's flying chariot and the next thing you know you're out on your ass. Check out the final boot-lick the White House Military Affairs Director gives before he gets escorted out by security. From Political Punch:
A senior administration official tells ABC News that as part of the White House report investigating the April 27 Air Force One flyover of Manhattan, White House Military Office director Louis Caldera has submitted his letter of resignation and President Obama has accepted.Don't expect Obama to take any responsibility for this blunder. Senior Obama officials have a way of chucking their staff under the proverbial bus when it suits them politically.
In a letter dated May 8, Caldera writes that "I have concluded that the controversy surrounding the Presidential Airlift Group's aerial photo shoot over New York City has made it impossible for me to effectively lead the White House Military Office. Moreover, it has become a distraction to the important work you are doing as President. After much reflection, I believe it is incumbent on me to tender my resignation and step down as Director of the White House Military Office."
